Frank Vogel Rumors

Brad Stevens: “I called Frank Vogel the day I drove to the gym, when we played Milwaukee, and just asked him, ‘What are some of the things that Paul did in his year off that you would really encourage? What are some of the things that we should be looking [to]?’ And, hey, [Hayward is] going to be the best guy shooting out of a chair, with his left hand, with his right hand, perfect his form, and let’s have fun. Let’s come up with creative ways to attack this thing.”

A member of the Orlando Magic’s starting five has taken a step toward returning to the court. Swingman Terrence Ross practiced fully with his teammates Tuesday and seems likely to play in the team’s season-opener Wednesday night against the Miami Heat if he doesn’t have any unforeseen setbacks. “Terrence got out there and practiced and looked pretty good,” coach Frank Vogel said. “So we’ll see how he feels.”

Isaac, who played one season at FSU and just turned 20 years old, already has made a strong first impression on Vogel. “For me, anything he does on the offensive end is gravy, and he’s got a good feel [there] on the offensive end,” Vogel said. “But he is NBA-ready to come in and impact our team on the defensive end right now, and he’s showing it every time we see him out there [with] his length at the rim [and] his ability to guard on the perimeter. It’s beyond his years.”
You’ve never experienced many seasons like last year, making the playoffs five times in your six years in the NBA prior to coming to Orlando. How long did it take you to get over struggling and missing the playoffs? COACH VOGEL: “I still haven’t gotten over it. I don’t want to do that again and I’m not going to do that again. We’ve got to have a better year this year. The whole summer has been spent on the upcoming season and getting ready for the job that we have in front of us. I’m excited about it.’’
